Charlotte Crosby has revealed she was ‘on the verge of dying’ after suffering a traumatic ectopic pregnancy that left her worried about her chances of having children in the future.
It was four years ago that Charlotte, one of the original Geordie Shore cast members, suffered the heartbreaking blow and was rushed into surgery.
The ectopic pregnancy was the catalyst for Charlotte walking away from the show and she opened up about just how serious it was in her episode of Geordie Shore: Their Story that aired on MTV on Tuesday night.
The Sunderland lass was the star of the spin-off series’ final instalment and going back to that traumatic day in 2016, Charlotte said: “I had been in crippling pain for at least five days. I knew something was wrong.
“We went to A&E, got seen straightaway luckily. The gynecologist said what’s happening to your body now is that you’re having an ectopic pregnancy where the egg gets trapped in the fallopian tube and actually just starts to grow there until it can’t grow no more.
“And I was literally on the verge of dying, if I’d left it any longer I just wouldn’t be here. My fallopian tube had split open and I’d been internally bleeding for a week.”
Tearfully recalling how she felt after her emergency surgery, Charlotte continued: “I came round from the operation and the gynecologist came in and told us that I had had my right fallopian tube and ovary taken away and straightaway I just thought ‘f*** I’m not going to be able to have kids, like, this is awful.
“You don’t realise, even if you’re not very broody or it’s something you’ve never thought about when you suddenly think that that’s been taken away from you, it like suddenly hits home.”
Charotte’s mam Letitia also appeared on the show and, in her emotional piece to camera, said: “Just seeing her, it just really upsets us even to now, just to think, that, you know, she might struggle when she tries for a baby and that’s something she wants to do.”
